Autumn Days Candy Topper

I think the "Autumn Days" set is a pretty versatile one. Plus it's a GREAT set for making masculine cards. You just can't seem to find enough of those, can you?

For this cute little treat bag I started out with some candy pumpkins and a 3" x 4" plastic zip bag. I set the pumpkins inside so they were "tops up."

Next I cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock 3-1/8" x 4". I folded it in half on the long side. I put the zipper part of the bag inside the fold, all the way to the top and I stapled it together using two staples.

Then I cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock I had decorated with the leaf from the "Autumn Days" set. I stamped the leaves on using Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and More Mustard. I know, there's no Pumpkin Pie ink on the vanilla. It was just too bright of an orange for the topper. This little vanilla piece was cut 1-7/8" x 3-1/8". I cut two and put one on the back. I wanted the staples to be completely covered. I sponged the edges with More Mustard before I taped them in place on top of the Pumpkin Pie card stock.

I stamped the"HAPPY THANKSGIVING" in using Chocolate Chip ink. I punched them out with the Word Window punch and sponged the edges with More Mustard. I taped them in place in the center of the header. SO quick and SO simple! A fun and quick way to make some sweet treat gifts for fall or Thanksgiving.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

And I suppose we should NOT eat the candies BEFORE we give them as a gift?
